Ezekiel 2 - NIV

Ezekiel’s Call to Be a Prophet

1 He said to me, “Son of man,[a] stand up on your feet and I will speak to you.”

5 And whether they listen or fail to listen—for they are a rebellious people—they will know that a prophet has been among them.


Footnotes

a. Ezekiel 2:1 The Hebrew phrase ben adam means human being. The phrase son of man is retained as a form of address here and throughout Ezekiel because of its possible association with “Son of Man” in the New Testament.
